Xbox One?

  • So I was looking at the release notes for the new version of Construct and it talks about Xbox One? Has anyone released C2 content on that platform? How do you go about that?

  • I would like to know also, anyone know?

  • I also want to know about that too.

  • Ashley made a blog post describing how to do it...

  • Thanks for the link Lancifer !

  • Beware on the preview Dev Mode though. You can't play any retail games while on Dev Mode which is a downside for me right now. I'll just wait until it official releases.

    You can switch to and from Dev Mode any time you want to play games.

    It's not as easy as that. As Ashley posted in the link above...

    [quote:2d8ikr8k]Important When you activate Developer Mode on Xbox One, you are opting into Xbox system updates for a developer preview release that includes experimental and early pre-release software. This means that some popular games and apps will not work as expected, and you may experience occasional crashes and data loss. If you leave the developer preview, your console will factory reset and you will have to reinstall all of your games, apps, and content.

    That's wrong. Installing and enabling the Dev Mode does not erase anything you have installed and you can go back to your regular console at any time. In fact, I just did that right now.

    I did get an error but it was because I had to uninstall the games I was developing before unchecking the "developer mode" option on the system menu.

  • Well, that's interesting. I'd like to get more confirmation on this before making the move myself.

    But you will have to factory reset your Xbox in order to go back to Retail for the time being..

    I don't want to do that..

    I keep reading that everywhere but I don't know what to say, for me it didn't factory reset anything. There's even a button in the Xbox Dev Mode app that says "Leave developer mode". If you click it the console restarts as retail and does not factory reset or anything.

    And here's an article about it:

  • Heh, figures. I traded my One in for a PS4 last October and this happens. I'd love to try this out to see if my game runs on that.

    More game companies should really make their consoles their own dev kits, I'm glad Microsoft is embracing this. This has been such a weird gen. My only concern is that Xbox One owners don't technically play many indie titles (save for the nostalgic Rareware crowd), but it's the thought that counts right?

  • I believe it's not temporarily leaving Dev Mode that wipes your system, it's when you want to remove Dev Mode from your xbox.

    Alright, I will download Dev Mode later today and give it a try then. <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":mrgreen:" title="Mr. Green">
